“When you follow quick fixes [from social media], you wind up spending a lot of time, energy, money, and resources on things that may not work for your individual case. And I think it's so valuable to understand you are unique—we have a lot of similarities, but your particular situation may not fit neatly into a box,” says board-certified dermatologist and hormone expert Keira Barr, M.D. In this episode of Clean Beauty School, mindbodygreen’s beauty director Alexandra Engler and Barr discuss the many ways hormones affect your skin, why it happens, and why there is no one-size-fits all solution.
